It’s that time of year when the Hall of Fame Seniors Committee starts considering candidates for nomination. As Packers fans, we all know about the travesty that is Jerry Kramer, he who was voted one of the best players of the NFL’s first 50 years, not being in the Hall of Fame.
As I’ve written before, it’s a wrong that needs to be righted.
It’s also a crusade we’ve taken up before, helping his daughter, Alicia in her efforts to persuade the Hall of Fame committee members. While success has eluded us, it’s not something we’re planning on giving up on.
We are calling on all of Packer Nation to join in on this effort, and to give you all a little extra incentive, anyone who helps is eligible to win this fabulousÂ one of a kindÂ autographed football by the man himself, Jerry Kramer. The football has been generously donated to the cause by our sponsor, Waukesha Sports Cards. Check their web site for a great collection of Packers memorabilia.
Here are the details:
